Californian contractor Granite has been awarded a $127m deal to build structures at a US Marine Corp base in the Pacific island of Guam.
The task involves building an equipment warehouse, a climate-controlled maintenance space and a vehicle garage with a total area of 110,000 sq ft.
The buildings and related infrastructure will support the relocation of marines to Camp Blaz in Guam from Okinawa, Japan.
Curt Haldeman, Granite’s vice president in the region, said: “This strategic win is a result of Granite’s Federal Division’s more than a decade-long work in Guam, supporting initiatives to strengthen our home market and promoting our client-centric culture.”
Work on the project, which was awarded by the Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command, is due to begin in this month and is expected to be completed by December 2025.
